Safety campaign needed at schools
Schools have opened after the long summer and Eid holiday break.
As there are now many new residents in the country, it is important to start traffic safety campaigns so everyone is aware of the dos and don'ts - especially mothers who are dropping off and picking up their children.
I have found that many of these drivers are not wearing seat belts.
Why not introduce a campaign where the road-safety checks are made by female police officers?
I feel they will be more effective when it comes to imparting knowledge to women and children about the dangers of not following traffic rules and regulations.
It will also give added prominence and recognition to the female members of the country's police forces.
